Marine Explorers Virtual Summer Camp | Kids Out and About Pittsburgh

Marine Explorers Virtual Summer Camp


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/13/2021
We are offering 2-hour per day, week long, camps for 9-13 year olds that are curious about the ocean. The virtual camps will engage your child in marine science learning during their summer. Our focus for these camps will be Marine Ecosystem Science! Our intrepid campers will explore the diversity of our local ecosystems and real techniques for how scientists study organisms.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

Explore the ocean from your homes. Learn about the animals and  ecosystems found within the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary right here on the shores of San Francisco. Dive into ocean-themed games, art and experiments. View live  plankton, crabs and fish. Watch interactive dissections of squid and salmon!  A packet with educational materials will be mailed to families ahead of each camp. Your camper will need a computer or tablet to use, a table top surface to work on and a little space to move around. Highlights include interactive quizzes, dissections,  dances, games, and live animals!
